Out of all of the possible issues that you could have with a tree in your garden, knowing whether it is still alive or not is pretty high up there on the list! A dead or dying tree can actually be quite dangerous to have around for a number of different reasons, some relating to the health and condition of the other wildlife and nature around it, and some for the more human element of safety in the vicinity of a tree that could fall down at any moment. With all of this in mind, your expert La Canada tree service shares some vital information about how to tell whether your tree is dying or not, and what you can do about it with their help.

What Are The Signs Of A Dead Tree?

Some of the key signs that a tree on your property is dying or dead include noticing that there are multiple branches that do not appear to have any living bugs on them, mushrooms that are growing near the roots of the tree, cracks that are starting to show and expand on the trunk and bark that is appearing to peel away from the main bulk of the trunk.

How Can You Test If The Tree Is Dying?

There are a few things that you can do in order to check if a tree in your garden is on the way to dying. Some of the most common and effective include scratching some twigs to see if they are green, taking a closer look at the trunk and looking for signs of cracking, splitting, and peeling, and looking for signs of fungus that might have set up camp on the tree, examining the canopy to see if there are a large number of branches that are about to fall away and looking to see if there are any large spots of leaves missing from the branches.

What Can You Do To Save The Tree?

If the problem with the tree is identified as something that can be reversed, like mild disease, then a professional arborist might be able to step in and change the situation before it is too late. Regardless, you will always need to consult the experts when you think a tree might be dying. Whether it is able to be saved or needs to be removed, both ends of the spectrum require professional skill and experience.
